Full description
As part of a small group led by a professional local guide, skip the lines at the Castel Sant'Angelo to set off on a 2-hour tour. Start the adventure of the famous castle that was erected by Emperor Hadrian to be his tomb. The building has also been used by popes as their private residence, the state treasury, a prison, and as a location for public executions throughout its history. In just 2 hours you’ll have the chance to discover the rich history of the castle and its magnificent architecture and paintings. You’ll be introduced to the emperor's burial place, the papal apartment, and treasury room. Admire the beautiful angel sculptures along the Ponte Sant'Angelo bridge, also known as the Bridge of Angels.

Our tour guide Oleg was truly exceptional. His level of knowledge and his friendly nature made the tour an absolute pleasure. His interest was contagious and the tour flew by. It far exceeded our expectations as a great tour guide makes such a difference. I look forward to future trips with Oleg as our tour guide.

After some initial confusion About the Meeting Point we had a very enjoyable and interesting tour with our guide Mattia. He showed to be very knowledgeable and shared all the information (and it was really a lot of information) in a pleasant and entertaining way. With his open and kind personality he made it a great experience for us.
